There is also a survey for Social Care and ELC employees. This will gather the views of employees on what encouraged them to join the sector, what motivates them to stay and what their future intentions are. If you work in Social Care or ELC, or if you are an employer who can circulate the following link to your employees, please follow – or share -this link: Employee survey

The surveys will close at 5pm on 17th May
